Any clue's on origin and/or maker? Amethyst vase
« on: May 04, 2011, 04:46:18 PM »
Has anyone seen these before? I thought maybe Aseda when I bought it, but not so sure now, I haven't seen any Aseda like this one and now I'm thinking maybe this is sold in big the chain store shops?, measurement is 7 inches high.
I would welcome your thoughts,

Robert

According to a very reliable source who has acess to Aseda catalogues, this is indeed Aseda, and designed by Bo Borgstrom.  The 210mm version is pattern number B5/130, I'm not sure if your size would have a different number.

Forgot to add - there's also one of these with an Aseda label shown in the book Scandinavian Glass Fire & Sea, page 14.

Yes as Wayne's writing. This is an Asedavase by Bo Borgstrom. It was made in following colours: green, brown, amethyst and blue.
Nice piece!
